Today is the 11th anniversary of the September 11th attacks. Americans will unite in service in the same remarkable way that so many of us came together following the attacks.
The September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance is the culmination of efforts originally launched in 2002 by the 9/11 nonprofit MyGoodDeed with wide support by the 9/11 community and leading national service organizations.
This effort first established the inspiring tradition of engaging in charitable service on 9/11 as an annual and forward-looking tribute to the 9/11 victims, survivors, and those who rose up in service in response to the attacks.
In 2009, Congress designated September 11th as a National Day of Service and Remembrance under bipartisan federal law, and charged the Corporation for National and Community Service with helping to support this effort across the country.
Millions throughout the world performed good deeds last 9/11, each paying tribute through positive action.
What will you do this year to help grow the movement around the globe…
